I talked to him last night and he told me that Jesus gave them a special service yesterday and really helped him as he preached! :-)

PLEASE PRAY!!! Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly have asked me to have a ladies meeting while I'm here.
So, Lord willing we are planning on having a special meeting for the ladies, serving refreshments which I will make, and they have asked me to speak to the ladies on the roles of a wife.
I'm not one that loves to speak up front, so PLEASE PRAY FOR ME!
Please pray that God will give me the right words to share that will encourage these ladies to be the BEST wives they can be with Jesus' help! :-) THANK YOU!!!

In December my Dear Sister Laura took our kids and I and her 2 youngest to the Cincinnati Museum in the old train center!
It was so much FUN seeing things about historic Cincinnati...and we made a lot of fun memories! Thank you, Laura!
~Here Elijah and Mary were about to ride the little train.~
Everyone bought their own Starbucks drink and we had a fun visit.
Then we went to the mall and walked around together. Fun times!~
~Our SPECIAL Christmas Eve!!~Earlier in December my Dear Brother Andrew and his twin boys left AK and started driving down to the lower 48. We were hoping to get to see them around the 15th or 16th of Dec.
But, then he had truck trouble and got stuck for a few days.
THEN, we purchased our tickets to fly out on Christmas day and I didn't know IF we would get to see them or not!! :-(
But, wouldn't you know Jesus worked it out to where ANDREW AND HIS WHOLE FAMILY from AK got to Cinci on the 24th, THE DAY BEFORE WE LEFT!!! =)
What a FUN time we had getting to be together with Andrew, Vonnie, Heidi, Katie, Drew, Grant, Taylor, and Tyler, as well as Daryl and Laura and family, and Gramp and Gram Daddy and Moma).
BUT...We surely MISSED Lincoln, Lyn, Keith, Natalie (and baby), and Kelsea.
~Cousins HAPPY to be together!!~
Top to Bottom:
Daryl and Laura
Andrew and Vonnie,
Phillip and Heather
Since this was a LAST MINUTE Gathering....My DEAR brother Lincoln and his sweet wife Lyn couldn't be with us. :-(~
~And ALLLLL of us....because THESE 2 SPECIAL PEOPLE FELL IN LOVE!!! :-)I LOVE my sweet Daddy and Moma!!!~
~PICS FROM OUR DAYS IN COLOMBIA~~As you can see Baby Abigail gets FAR MORE LOVIN' than she probably wants. ;-) ~
Noah, Nicolas, and Elijah spent HOURS together when we lived in the house right beside him.
Nicolas didn't know we were back in Colombia and we went by his house the other day.
Noah yelled, "Nicolas...Amigo" (Friend) and after a few seconds....Nicolas came outside with a HUGE SMILE on his face!!!
~Our New Year's Eve!~On New Year's Eve...we had a service that started at 5:00.
Kimberly played her violin and I played the piano, Sis. Farly led in the prayer time Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly led the songs, Sarah and Gaby sang, and Phillip preached.
Yummy Colombian Mango, Papaya, Pineapple, and apples.
We also served my jello salad (not pictured) and Sis. Farly's Coconut Natilla (Also not pictured.)
Natilla is a Colombian tradition for Christmas time!
It's sort of like a thick pudding. It was delish!)
Bro. Paul Pilmore sent a lot of Nice clothes for Pastor Jimmy with us and they fit him wonderfully and are being SUCH a Blessing! ~
